Natasha Oakley wants her Instagram fans to know that most of the work behind the stunning bodies of swimsuit models comes down to lighting and angles. On Wednesday, the model took took to the popular photo-sharing social media app to share a sizzling video of herself in a tiny bikini as she strikes different poses in an effort to show her followers some of her tips and tricks for always looking her best.
In the clip, the Australian bombshell leans against a white wall as she rocks a black two-piece bikini. The top consists of an underwire bra with two thin straps that go over the model’s shoulders and features a low-cut neckline that plunges deep into Oakley’s chest, accentuating her busty figure and putting her cleavage front and center. The model teams her top with a matching black bottom that sits high on her frame — just above her bellybutton — showing off Oakley’s incredibly toned upper abs, while the piece’s high legs help accentuate her strong and firm thighs. According to the tag she included with her post, the two-piece she is wearing is from Monday Swimwear, a beachwear brand she launched in 2014 alongside her close friend and business partner Devin Brugman.

Always working these curves. Just so you guys know it really is all about the angle and light. ????????♀️I’ve been modeling swimwear for almost 12 years now and everyone’s body can look amazing in some light and from some angles and horrible in others! A lot of people ask me my main tips for taking bikini pics and they are to always elongate your body, point your toes, keep your arms off the sides of your body but most importantly to just smile and relax! Think of how the 80’s and 90’s supermodels would do it before editing! I think everyone should embrace their natural beauty but I also know how discouraging it can feel to see a photo of yourself where you don’t feel your best, so I get it ladies, the camera can be your best friend and worst enemy ????????♀️!!! Either way keep rocking those bikini bodies and don’t forget everybody has a “bikini body”!!!✨ wearing #mondaysignaturecollection
Oakley is facing a different camera than the one shooting the video, which puts her right side to the viewer. The model has her left hand on the white wall next to her as she moves from pose to pose, showing off different perspectives of her body.
In her caption, Oakley shared that her main tips are to elongate the body, point the toes and keep the arms away from the sides, all of which she appears to be applying in the video.
The Bronte native wears her blonde hair in a casual middle part and down in relaxed, loose waves that cascade over her shoulders and onto her back and chest.
The post, which Oakley shared with her 2.1 million Instagram followers, was viewed more than 147,000 times in about half a day. It garnered over 21,000 likes and more than 200 comments.
